I had Essure done 3 weeks ago. Since then, I have been experiencing several negative changes in my body. I was not sure what was going on. I went back to my OB/GYN Friday & he did an ultrasound to make sure the coils are in the right location still. I told him I was having pain. I have been bleeding non-stop since the procedure. I have flank pain on both sides of my abdomen. It feels as though I went swimming or running too soon after eating or drinking and it has caused a side cramp. My actual stomach hurts constantly. My abdomen is so tender to the touch. I have a 4 month old baby and this makes it very difficult to hold her and enjoy her. My pelvic area hurts so bad constantly too. I have sharp, stabbing pains and cramps on both sides. I only have 1 tube and ovary anyway, but my doctor put a coil in on both sides. He said there was enough of a ‘stump’ on the left side to go ahead and put the coil in. I cannot eat more than a few bites without feeling physically ill. My stomach is so bloated and achy feeling all the time. It is affecting my sleep. I was not made aware that the coils are made of nickel. I am highly allergic to nickel products. I cannot even wear a watch or cheap earrings due to the nickel making me rash out immediately. When I was younger, I would have to use the sticky end of a band-aid to place on the back of my pants buttons to keep from developing a rash on my stomach. Now I have something implanted inside of me that my body is rejecting due to a nickel allergy. I called my doctor today, after doing some research online and I am demanding they be removed immediately. I have an appoinment tomorrow at 1pm to discuss what my doctor wants to do. If he is not willing to remove them, I will find someone that will. I refuse to live in pain and have this affect my quality of life.
